Following the Biblical tradition of acknowledging that all good things come from God and to show our gratitude, we give back to God through the Church and the poor a portion of what He has given to us.
St Monica Parish has had a long tradition of reaching out to those in need. At the present time 5% of every Sunday collection is allocated to a specific group in need. The name of this group is announced before each Mass and a brief description regarding their mission is shared as well.
There are some guidelines that have been suggested by the 2008-2009 Pastoral Council. The congregation was invited to view the guidelines and suggest groups who they would like to receive stewardship. Over 30 different groups have been the recipients since this ministry was started in January 2009.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
